My 11 month old wakes up every night and won't go back to sleep unless he's in my bed...help!

My son is 11 months old. I can get him down for bed and put him in his crib and he'll sleep for a little while, he wakes up anywhere between 12 and 4 and won't go back to sleep unless he's got his arms wrapped around my neck and laying in my bed. If I try to put him back in his crib once he goes back to sleep, it never fails that before I can get back in my own bed, he's awake and crying. He'll take naps in his crib just fine, but night time is a whole other story. What can I do to get him to sleep in his crib all night?

  • Awwww. Why make him? They're only little for a little while. They go through phases. Your baby needs you right now. It won't last forever, unfortunately.

  • I don't think its a big deal at all. As long as he is going down in his own bed at first... its a phase. And it will pass. But I wouldn't worry about it.

  • I'd also like to add that I can't even get my 10 month old to take a nap with me! I would love it if she would she would cuddle and sleep with me sometimes! So if I were I would just try to enjoy it while it lasts =]

  • I'd let him. He's probably having a touch of seperation anxiety or hitting a mile stone. He needs his mommy.
